(Huffington Post)   The US government just ordered 1,000 pounds of high-grade pot. No word on whether they also sourced a couple of hundred boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts and some Funyuns. For research and stuff   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 52

*crosses fingers* that federal government has come up with a new plan to give out bonuses to employees and contractors.

I just ran out of pot 2 days ago, so I'm getting a kick out of the article?

There are five groups ACTIVELY lobbying to prevent any laws from being passed to reclassify or even allow committees bring up laws that people could vote on to make pot iegal.

Police Unions - pot smokers are easy pickin's

Private Prisons -There have been reports recently of school principles being in cahouts with private prisons to send troubled teens right into the prison system

Alcohol and Beer Companies - POT would be competition for their intoxicants
Pharmaceutical Companies - who says pot has no acceptable medical uses?
Prison Guard Unions - lobbying to prevent reduced sentences for pot smokers.

Yes I am.

I'm guessing their research will conclude that it is worse then heroin.

So, they ordered 1,000 lbs for the projects that are consuming 500 lbs in the near future.
The 250 lbs will be delived this fall. And storage for the 100 lbs of pot is being secured.
 
2014-05-06 10:58:22 AM
1,000 lbs? I wonder if the government uses cop math on the buying end as well - that $30 billion won't be easy to replace.

I thought they ordered 5000 lbs.?

Smart thinking on their part. The way things are going, there really will be a clamor for blanket legalization which will bring on the need for more lab testing. Whether that testing really is necessary for the general public,  I dunno.

2014-05-06 11:04:30 AM
Schedule 1 means no possible medical use.

So if they want to do research on it, they should probably classify it as Schedule 2 or something. 

Or you know, just arrest themselves and sentence themselves to life in prison.

Why do you think they're researching medicinal use, or other beneficial effects?

I assume they are researching all the harmful effects of it.  Like how it leads to Jazz music.

You can't research the harmful effects either.  Harmful effects are just as medically related as helpful ones.

The schedule 1 classification means we already know it's harmful and need to do no further testing.

So far no stoner rant on the type of weed ordered which can easily descend into a thread more appropriate for microbrew fanboys.

They miss Afghanistan and its pot forests full of terrists, the poor dears!

Seriously, in Kandahar, the district that the Canadian Government requested to patrol, the pot plants grow as high as an elephant's eye. The plant is native to that region apparently.

If it's the same old `Uncle Sam's Best' (their grow has been constant at U.Miss since the late `60's) the Delta Nine is a whopping 3.5% (at the time, the `potent' commercial Colombian was ~5%).  However, it looks like they're actually going to `expand' their lines:
http://www.leafscience.com/2014/03/25/u-s-federal-marijuana-farm-off er -new-strains/

Irvin Rosenfeld & the few other, remaining, `Compassionate use' Fed Program recipients of the 3.5% might get an upgrade??  Doubtful.  IIRC these patients (Rosenfeld has been getting 300 cigs/9oz. a month, every month, since 1982 from U. M./NIDA) requested the Feds subject them to rigorous med testing, in 2002 (wanted to know what all that smoking had done to them), Feds refused.  The `lab rats' then had their own testing done (USC?).  Only thing that showed up was acute bronchitis from smoking all those machine rolled unfiltered `Lucky's' (Rosenfeld has passed the 300,000 puffed, mark).

Rosenfeld and friends are expanding out:   http://www.marketwatch.com/story/medical-marijuana-operators-and-faci l ity-providers-expand-operations-company-adds-well-known-major-marijuan a-authority-to-board-of-directors-2014-04-15

A "munchie" joke in relation to pot.  Hilarious.  I find these references usually to be levied by non smokers who seek to prove how cool they are with someone's choice in the matter by making light of an exaggerated side effect mostly experienced by novice smokers.

That was my first thought:  They need more so they can inject mice with an amount that equals a year of heavy smoking of thc and report the finding about how toxic THC (*can be*).

You forgot the union of scared mommies who equate legalization to mandating smoking in kindergarten.
 
2014-05-06 01:36:57 PM
Where in the article did it say it's "high grade pot"? Just because the feds say "medical" doesn't mean high grade. I bet there pot sucks. I'm sure its dirt weed full of seeds. It's probably more like what you would make hemp from than anything like what you would want to smoke.

You keep thinking that. Cries of "let the states decide" are simply a way of removing the Federal Government's preemption guaranteed under the constitution in regards to discrimination and protected classes, and allowing States to enact laws based on popular majority rather than constitutional principles.

Might as well, the way the govt has been working lately, they might as well knock off and get high.

Maybe we can arrest Eric Holder for not doing his job?  Here the very govt agencies are going to break the law and do research on a drug more dangerous than Heroin.  BTW, if that IS true then we should legalize Heroin as well.

I doubt it. They probably busted some pro grower and have him doing their work for them in lieu of going to jail for 65 million years for growing a plant.

The federal government has been studying high grade, high THC-content marijuana as an investigational new drug for the past fourty years through a program at the University of Mississippi. Their agriculture and pharmacy programs there contribute to it.

A close friend in High school was pretty fat a la Cartman. When I met him again after 3 years overseas, I could barely recognized him because he had lost so much weight. His secret? He started smoking pot. Strangely he said, he was simply too lazy to eat and being high was filling in its own way.
To screw stereotypes even more, he went from an average student, to a top 3 student at law school.

Every concealed carry state I know has a question on the renewal/initial issue questionare about use of mind-altering substances or addition - medication or not. If you're using any form of mind altering substance on a regular basis, be it Hydrocodone or Pot, you're supposed to surrender your CCW Permit.

Also, FSM help you if a cop catches you drunk/stoned and armed, at least in Tennessee. It's grounds to revoke your CCW Permit.

Once you smoke it for a while you don't have those urges, and it's not like you have zero control over yourself to stop eating. It really just makes your body turn off the "I'm full" feeling. I think it may be your relationship with food you need to reconsider before reconsidering your view of pot.
